2013-02-14 11:03:57 AM
Wow.  You know...I'm starting to really appreciate the Dorner sympathizers.  I can't condone what he did, but damn, the LAPD really seems to be just a large, corrupt, gang.
 
2013-02-14 11:04:05 AM
So, a decision to take no prisoners saves the city $1 million?  Do you think the LAPD brass knew this and conveyed it to the field?  Or, after having a number of officers gunned down, were the police there just too hot to ever expect him to be brought in alive, so putting "capture and conviction" made an award extremely unlikely.
 
2013-02-14 11:04:11 AM
That's just a reporter speculating.  Any statements from the LAPD or City that supports this?

Thing is, if they do this "too often," they'll have trouble getting cooperation in the future.

I think the people trying to collect the reward could use the 2 situations where the cops shot at 2 vehicles without trying to confrim they were Dorners vehicle or that Dorner was even in them as proof that the police did not intend on capturing Dorner and convicting him.

Are you shiatting me?   So, because the cops kill him by chucking explosives in the house and starting a fire, they don't have to pay?

They got a tip, the guy is dead, and the police get credit and can say "be at ease citizen"
 
2013-02-14 11:15:12 AM
The cops are the ones that botched the capture and convict part, not the tipsters.  Give 'em the damned reward money already.
 
2013-02-14 11:16:05 AM
Anyone still wonder why people who are off balanced [and imho this guy WASNT] don't trust the cops when they say we only want to talk.

If they cared about words they wouldn't have been bigots and shiatbags to begin with.
 
2013-02-14 11:17:39 AM
I wonder who is going to pay for the house the cops burned down, but didn't set fire to, so they didn't really burn it down, but it burned down any way. I am sure the owners insurance company will find a reason not to pay.
 
2013-02-14 11:17:52 AM
I was honestly expecting the city/police department to give the money to the victims families.

GORDON: LAPD just keeps improving their image.

Now they are murderers, liars, AND they don't honor their promises.


FTA:  LA's mayor offered the hefty sum for the "capture and conviction" of Dorner.
FTA:  The city council also offered money - $100,000, but also for his capture and conviction.

Neither are the LAPD, so pinning this specific issue directly on the PD would be a bit misguided.

The LAPD had no intention of capturing Dorner.  So technically, there never WAS a reward.  It was a revenge killing and they made it as painful as possible.

The LADP is just one piece of the problem. And multiple jurisdictions were happy with the Kool Aid. You cannot consistantly provide this kind of "Police and Protect" over decades, after repeated investigations and purges w/o missing the head of the beast in the first place.

Next time the tipster will just give themselves up as a hostage to increase the chances of the fugitive being taken alive.

Or maybe film and witness the police in action, regardless if it helps or not, they are just protecting their promised property after all.

When my wife worked in a probation office for a year, she knew the guy who was in charge of handling reward money.  He thought they gave away some money "twice a year", and never the full amount.

Sometimes the money doesn't technically exist--it's like the prize money for a hole-in-one at a golf tournament.  You're putting up an insurance policy, in short.

No way justifying Dorner, he was an idiot douchenozzle who managed to everybody but those from the LAPD he had a problem with. I am also one of the first to laugh at pulled out of your ass conspiracy theories. But there is no way you can tell me they diidn't roast Dorner's ass intentionally. This was personal. He was a "dead man walking" the second he made law enforcement his intended target.

He did accomplish one goal though, he did expose the LAPD and the regional law enforcement as a whole in that area as I will just say not the most professional of operations.

Even if this does expose corruption and that Dorner was blackballed for doing the right thing, his actions do nothing to clear his name. His actions show that he was never "qualified" to be an officer in the first place. He was the psycho guy with the potential of going postal. The LAPD with their corruption just provided the stimulus to unleash the potential. From what you gather from his family and hish ex-girlfriend on the news, he was in many ways a "basket case" and he was even too much of a "basket case" for the LAPD, where normally that would be an assest.

Isn't "capture and conviction" standard language in a reward? Never really paid attention before, just seems logical to prevent multiple claims.

And aren't there still hearings and legal proceedings that are done to apply a conviction or assign a guilt status, in the event of a suspects death? Would that be able to apply?
 
2013-02-14 12:15:14 PM
I don't know why I'm bothering, but here goes:

LAPD didn't burn the cabin down. Big Bear isn't even in Los Angeles County. If you have a problem with how the standoff at the cabin was resolved, talk to the San Bernadino Sheriff's Department.

Dorner killed no LAPD officers. Zero. He assassinated two civilians, killed a cop from a different city, and killed a game warden.

If you hate LAPD, whatever. But get your facts right.

I.e., if you see somebody who resembles a fugitive running towards your house, you have EVEN MORE incentive to open fire wildly, instead of waiting for the police.

You might still get in trouble for "standing your ground," but at least you won't have the house torched down around you with no recourse whatsoever.

They don't deserve a dime, because they were greedy.  The LAPD's terms and conditions were right there on the reward offer.If you channel your inner Jane Fonder or Pole-During-Hitler-Invasion and drop a dime on someone being pursued by stormtroopers, don't pitch a biatch when the stormtroopers' antics turn on you.

meh, he's dead, LAPD is still a corrupt, lying, bigoted asshat organization.  If you don't think the cops are out to get you for every possible dime they can take from fines and seizures, you're living in a dream world.  The million will be lost to red tape and end up lining someone's pocket, making a very nice retirement, even if they are getting a pension, because as you know, more money is always better than less money.  The guiding principle for the jurisdictions has been thus ever since the drug war turned into a for-profit venture, with the local counties getting to keep half of everything they take.  If you think all the drugs are being burned, I'd love to come visit, because those must be some killer shrooms you are on.

What breach of contract?  The cops said from the very beginning the tip had to lead to a conviction.

I wonder if someone could set up a graph or a chart of something, to determine what people's break points were in this fiasco:
- the information about the LAPD finding evidence of a beatdown but determining it wasn't enough of a beatdown
- the two old ladies
- the white surfer dude
- the dentist office
- the number of cops treating all 40 cops on the hit list and their immediate families as if they were the First Family and they were the Secret Service
- the twitter reports about the antics at the checkpoints
- the announcement of drones
- the scanner recordings
- the report someone tried to surrender and was pushed back into the house
- the fire all by itself

Krieghund: The other point everyone is forgetting is it isn't LAPD's money. It's donations.

I don't know how it works, but I bet the donors had lawyers make sure the money goes back to them if the reward isn't claimed.
So LAPD has zero incentive to stiff anyone.



Police union(s) did in fact donate... much like you said get your facts straight

Those cops have NO shame.

Satanic_Hamster: That's just a reporter speculating.  Any statements from the LAPD or City that supports this?

Thing is, if they do this "too often," they'll have trouble getting cooperation in the future.


Anyone?  This seems like another one of those baiting stories with absolutely no underlying story.

California is a bankrupt state!  They spent the last of their money on Albert Pujols.

Anyone who gave tips regarding Dorner are complete and total idiots.

This shady maneuver by LAPD is just a neon sign for the world's criminals that says "Come to LA!  Commit crimes here!  The people won't cooperate with police and you'll get away with it!"

It's not just the LAPD.  A few years ago a cop was shot dead in Paterson, NJ after he interrupted an armed robbery at a fried chicken place.   Cops offered a $10K reward for info about the shooter.  Shooter's homeboy immediately dropped a dime on him.  Cops picked up the shooter soon after.   The snitch......helpful citizen showed up at police HQ looking for his $10K.  Cops ran the informant's DL and found he had warrants for unpaid traffic fines and through him in jail.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Giltric: I think the people trying to collect the reward could use the 2 situations where the cops shot at 2 vehicles without trying to confrim they were Dorners vehicle or that Dorner was even in them as proof that the police did not intend on capturing Dorner and convicting him.

They don't deserve a dime, because they were greedy.  The LAPD's terms and conditions were right there on the reward offer.If you channel your inner Jane Fonder or Pole-During-Hitler-Invasion and drop a dime on someone being pursued by stormtroopers, don't pitch a biatch when the stormtroopers' antics turn on you.

/it would be a sad commentary if this was the watershed that made the pro-cop crowd turn against the LAPD
//very sad commentary



Citizen: Okay, I turned him in, do I get my reward?
Cop: Don't vurry. You vill get everyting that'z coming to you.

Cop: You vill get ze reward a traitor deserves.

I am sure this will work out for LA. After all, they really don't want tips anymore right?
 
2013-02-14 02:37:16 PM
So the moral of the story is "Don't help the LAPD catch cop killers."?

Not really, here's the quote from the dude who is demanding the $1million, as well as his picture, and two supporting news articles about it:

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/02/dorner-reward-million-r ic k-heltebrake-carjack.html

pixel.nymag.com

"Someone owes me $1 million," Rick Heltebrake, the man whom Christopher Dorner carjacked just before his shoot-out with police on Tuesday,   tells the Los Angeles Times.

"It was my call that led the officers to him," he said. Then he paused. "I know there were two other women involved and I don't mind parting it three ways."

Wait, you meant statements supporting the cops aren't going to pay:

Neiman said it was not clear who, if anyone, might claim the reward if the body is confirmed to be that of Dorner.

But the money shot has been this quote, reported widely raising the question can an Officer be an official source of information regarding the division of the reward, or is it better to wait for the lawyers to parse the doubletalk of spokespersons?

- Officials are still considering how, and if, to distribute the reward. So far, it's looking unlikely.  "There was no capture and no conviction. It's kind of a no-brainer," LAPD Officer Alex Martinez  told CBS News.

And from the CBS news site:

-  Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's spokesman, Peter Sanders, said Wednesday it's too early in the investigation to determine whether anyone would deserve the award. LAPD Officer Alex Martinez says it's unlikely anyone can claim it because the reward referred to Dorner's capture and conviction.

I guess you could say Dorner WAS convicted. He didn't have a trial and all, but he was convicted and sentenced to death. Right? Pay da man his reward.
 
2013-02-14 03:19:55 PM

Trance354: meh, he's dead, LAPD is still a corrupt, lying, bigoted asshat organization.  If you don't think the cops are out to get you for every possible dime they can take from fines and seizures, you're living in a dream world.  The million will be lost to red tape and end up lining someone's pocket, making a very nice retirement, even if they are getting a pension, because as you know, more money is always better than less money.  The guiding principle for the jurisdictions has been thus ever since the drug war turned into a for-profit venture, with the local counties getting to keep half of everything they take.  If you think all the drugs are being burned, I'd love to come visit, because those must be some killer shrooms you are on.


And peeps think they are at the top of the food chain.
LOL
Time to become something more that a profit bearing animal.
Peeps, you are supposed to be in charge.

Snarfangel: GORDON: LAPD just keeps improving their image.

If the two maids are lucky white, the LAPD will give them a new truck.

If they are unlucky brown in any way, it will be after they fill their old truck with bullet holes.

LAPD is a police department, not a police union. You seem very confused.
 
2013-02-14 05:07:23 PM
The police never had any intention to capture Dorner.  They were intent on a revenge killing.
 
2013-02-14 06:03:37 PM

Lexx: Wow. You know...I'm starting to really appreciate the Dorner sympathizers. I can't condone what he did, but damn, the LAPD really seems to be just a large, corrupt, gang.


There are four gangs operating in LA The Bloods. The Crips. LAPD and the LA Sheriff's Department.

firefly212: Good luck catching the next cop killer when everyone knows your group is just a bunch of rampaging psychos AND the reward is BS.


Quite frankly, anyone with 1/2 a brain cell who happened to be keeping up with this situation had already assumed that nobody would ever collect the money.  There's no way the police ever planned to pay out and no way they planned to capture or convict Dorner.

Most likely, the folks trying to claim it now knew that as well, but are trying to play this thing out just in case.  I mean it doesn't hurt to try, does it?
 
2013-02-14 07:40:14 PM
NO ONE ever gets reward money.  It's a scam.  They always have loopholes.  I helped catch and convict a 3-striker that should have brought me two rewards.  I couldn't get either reward due to such loopholes and cons.  They strung me along 3 years while waiting for the trial and conviction.

/ scam

If Dorner really wanted to make a statement, he would have walked out with his hands in the air yelling 'Don't shoot!' - and let the LAPD shoot him to death on live TV, thus proving his points - because you know they would have turned him to swiss cheese the moment he walked out the door a la South Park 'He's Comin' RIght For Us!'
